American Forces Press Service

WASHINGTON, Sept. 26, 2008 – Coalition forces detained two suspected militants during operations targeting a Haqqani terrorist network in Afghanistan’s Khowst province yesterday, military officials reported.

The operation targeted a suspected Haqqani militant in Sabari district, near the Pakistan border, who is suspected to be in direct contact with Haqqani commanders.

The targeted militant also is suspected to be an active participant in the intertwined financial, bomb-making and foreign terrorist network.

Elsewhere, coalition forces detained two suspected militants during an operation in Ghazni province Sept. 23. The two militants were detained for their suspected ties to a Taliban terrorist network and foreign fighter facilitation in Andar district.
